Regulations.gov not only links to the text of recent proposed and final regulations (on gpoaccess), but the “read comments” section provides an opportunity to view comments submitted by others, including law firms, bar associations, corporations and the like. This can be useful in assessing what the tax bar, for example, thinks of a particular proposal. You can also submit your own comments while the comment period for a particular regulation is open. “Help” and “FAQ” sections provide basic information about what a regulation is and how to search the website. “What’s Hot” lists the most visited regulations and a “newly posted” section lists the most recent regulations. The website also provides an RSS feed.
